Langford said despite the ongoing closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, the fish were still biting.

"It was a great weekend of fishing down in NSW - there were plenty of fish caught and I managed to snag my first win for the year," Langford said.

"This series runs throughout the year and has currently been suspended, however it's great to start the year off with a win.

"The competition was run a little different than normal, with an online briefing and weigh-in to adhere to the social distancing guidelines."
